the u-s economy is struggling ... its never been so sluggish this long into a recovery. jim angle hs some of the reasons why. why. -------------------------------- -------------------------------- -------------------------------- -------------------------------- -------------------------------- ------------------------------ economists have little doubt about why the economy is slowing. for one thing, consumers aren't spending enough .. because they don't have enough: vitner says:
"mainly because there isn't a whole lot of income growth it's just hasn't been much income created over the last couple of years.moutray says: "consumers themselves are starting to get a little bit more anxious, and starting to say let's wait and see what's happening with the economy before we go out there and start making these major purchases."morici says: "soft consumer confidence, soft consumer spending it's an endless cycle that feeds on itself and the economy can't recover if that's the case." consumer spending is the main engine for economic growth. and if consumers aren't spending, businesses can't expand.. and hire: moutray says: "i think manufacturers are worried about slowing global sales. they are worried about what is happening with tax and regulatory policy. and i think so much is on hold until the election takes place, that manufacturers are really uncertain. there is a lot of anxiety out there." anxious about what will happen to tax rates, to federal spending, to health care costs -- a cloud of uncertainty that darkens the business climate. vitner says: "and given that, i understand why folks would be reluctant to hire more workers or expand their operations. employers also chafe at what they see as burdensome regulations: vitner says: "not just the number of regulations but in some
ways the attitude of the reeulators has become antagonistic.moutray says: "the manufacturers that i talk to are very worried about the regulatory onslaught that's coming their way. they're very worried about the fact that after the election there could be even more regulations coming down the pike." the last time a president facing reelection confronted this level of unemployment was ronald reagan in 1984. he got reelected, but with different policies:morici says: "ronald reagan had 10.4 percent unemployment at its peak, more than what president obama did at 10 percent but he deregulated, cut taxes, and bet on the private sector.moutray says: "president reagan really valued businesses a little bit differently. i think that you saw much more of an embrace of the free market in terms of letting tax policy and regulatory policy help to, again, create an environment whereby businesses could flourish."angle says: "economists don't see things changing much the rest of the year... with most projections for growth at 2 percent or so-- at best. as one critic put it, the economy "lacks wind and oxygen." in washington, jim angle, fox news." downtown baltimore...
may... look a bit... different... this weekend. it'll be invaded by airbenders , pokemon's and other asian pop culture characters...and its all for the annual áotakon conventioná. otakon 20-12 is one of the biggest anime conventions in the u-s-a with more than 30- thousand people attending each year. fans dress up in their favorite japanese cartoon costumes to enjoy japanese films, music and more. "its literally costume play so your dressing up as your favorite character and kind of taking over their persona the entire weekend. some people are going to take it more seriously and actualll perform during our masquerade." the event will be held through sunday july 29-th. all proceeds will benefit tsunami victims in japan. 3
many men... hate... going... to the grocery store.../ but... that... could change .. .with this... little isle... of paradise paradisea... new york grocery store... has... streamlined products.../ and... created ...the first ever... / "man aisle"....//it... includes things... most guys use../ . like... barbecue sauce... / razors.../ beef jerky ...and chips...//. it's... strategically located... right across... from... the beer aisle.../ , but... oddly enough... it's... the women ... who... seem to be ... the... most interested... in... the... man aisle 1:32 "single women... seem to be most interested in the man aisle. single women... who's go" going."the market says... with its success... of the man aisle.../ they're... hoping... to... roll it out... its locations. to all 5 of a... parking ticket... on your windshield... can... put a damper ... on... your day. .../ moss... of... us ... can't... do
much ...about it....// but when you're the mayor, you can take matters into your own hands. after getting a 20- dollar parking ticket, the mayor of logansport, indiana, decided to create his own parking place!he annexed two parking spots for himself, which used to be reserved for police cars.the mayor believes the 20-dollar fine boils down to tension between himself and the ticketing officer. the officer was chief of police until he was demoted when franklin took office. there's some sour grapes there, and i feel like it's an attempt to embarrass me or to intimidate me, and i'm not going to buy into it. i can't be intimidated. intimidated.mayor franklin says police still have eight parking places. 3 3 3 some frightening weather. the place that got
baltimore and howard counties. counties. but it was nothing like... this..... mother nature put on quite a light show over new york city last night. it only rainnd for about 15 minutes.... but the flashes of lightning were intense. there were reports of a tornado touching down in elmyra, new york. the storm was part of a system that stretched down to oklahoma. one of the ravens oneeof the ravens rivals is for sale...and the guy who wants to buy them is a steelers fan...next in sports unlimited...
that's it for us. here's moogan adsit with sports unlimited if you talk to the average sports fan...or even sports reporter outside this market... they immediately link the ravens with an old defense. with two people getting all the attention... ray lewis and ed reed. reed.no doubt about it they're the stamp of this franchise... and soon to be hall of famers..
in football terms they're old. lewis 37... entering his 17th season.reed 33... 11th season. but with the current 11 players running as starters... the ravens average age on defense is 27.take reed and lewis out of the equation it's 25..that's called prime football age just past a rookie deal.the ravens have changed their ways on defense... yet, no one's taking notice. 3 for the second straight day....ravens left tackle bryant mckinnie is still a no show.he has yet to report to camp... and will be fined every day he misses.john harbaugh said this week it's a personal matter...it's not mckinnie's first off the field issue.he's a liability..and
the ravens are prepared to move on without him in camp... michael oher is getting another shot at left tackle. 3 those poor cleveland browns...lost their team to baltimore...didn't have a team for three seasons. got one back.... and today it's for sale..owner randy lerner released a statement saying so...but said the organization will stay in cleveland.here's the kicker... jimmy haslam... minority owner of the steelers is in talks of buying.two years ago haslam said, "i am one-thousand percent a steelers fan."and that's what you call a conflict of interest. the orioles are hanging on to post season hopes...still a winning season... 7-and-a-half back from new york.but they have to be buyers.the m-l-b trade deadline is tuesdayy..so far the o's have been quite.
one rumor's gone... brewers pitcher zach grinke went to the angels. angels.while that happened... o's dug an early hole with the a's. bottom of the 8th... they trail 8-7...jim thome grounder up the middle...nick markakis comes around to score...game tied....2 batters later...bases loaded...chris davis singles into left...jj hardy scores...thome gets the green light...bad idea...not even close...but the o's take an 9-8 lead into the 9th.... jim johnson out to close.... derek norris chopper to first...over mark reynolds into right...eric sogard scores the tying run... johnson's 3rd blown save of the year....later in the 9th... jemile weeks lines it... brandon inge trots in from 3rd...a's take the lead 10-9... .next batter...coco crisp base knock to right...2 more runs score...johnson gives up 6 runs on 5 hits...his e-r-a before the all-star break
